June 4, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – Calibre One is pleased to announce our executive search partnership with The C100, an organization that supports Canadian technology entrepreneurship in Silicon Valley, has resulted in a new Executive Director. Atlee Clark, the organization’s Executive Director for the past four years, will be stepping down at the end of July.
Founded in 2009 by ultra-successful Silicon Valley-based entrepreneurs from Canada, The C100 supports Canadian technology entrepreneurship through mentorship, partnership and investment including a unique program that brings early-stage Canadian C100 Companies together for “48hrs in the Valley”. The C100 is preparing for a rapid growth period in which the Executive Director will be essential in maintaining the organization’s mission and financial objectives.
Joanne Fedeyko was chosen as the next Executive Director having spent close to eleven years in similar roles throughout the Bay Area. Joanne is a native Albertan who earned her CMA designation from the Society of Management Accountants in 1995. She moved to the Bay Area in 1999 and has experienced a diverse career in the startup, consulting, telecommunications, aviation and nonprofit sectors. As Executive Director, Joanne learned all aspects of running and growing a startup nonprofit and is excited to once again be back in a familiar role at the C100. She brings vast experience in fundraising, sponsorship, business development, partnerships, donor relations and marketing.
Atlee Clark was impressed with Joanne and Calibre One’s execution on the search saying, “We spent three months meeting with a variety of candidates, and saw many very qualified people who were passionate about the C100 mission and Canadian entrepreneurs. In the end, it was clear that Joanne was a perfect fit for continuing to grow and innovate on the incredible organization that C100 has become. Calibre One did a great job sourcing Canadians in the valley with extensive exposure to an entrepreneurial environment.”
Joanne’s transition into the role will be finalized at the end of July.
